I guess there's an inequality like:

Is there any way we can construct the torrent image on the fly from
the jigdo file? [That is, transform the packages that make up bits
x<->y into what they'd be on the iso?]

I don't know enough about the mkisofs process to say whether this is
possible, but it'd be very useful if it were.

In theory yes, and this would be quite useful. The code for this needs to be written though.

It would also be useful for me who runs the main cd torrent seeder in that I could just have an up-to-date debian archive and snapshot (minor rsync update), instead of syncing 300+ gigs of data before all the seeds are started up.
